Kenya Beauty Kenyan beauty Lupita Nyongo is known for being one of the most beautiful women in the world. The actress who had a big break in the movie ’12 Years A Slave’ coined her beauty in the eyes of all beholders when she was recognized as the world’s most beautiful woman by People’s Magazine.




Lupita Covers People’s Magazine as the most beautiful Woman in 2014

According to theGuardian.com, the People magazine award has only been given to women of colour three times since it was launched in 1990: Halle Berry in 2003, Jennifer Lopez in 2011 and Beyoncé in 2012. Previous winners include Gwyneth Paltrow, Leonardo DiCaprio and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Lupita was one of the first natural hair dark skinned beauties to be heavily embraced by the mainstream media as beautiful. Unfortunately, it took 2014 to show us how late and misinformed the mainstream was on beauty.

From 2014 to 2017 Lupita also became the red carpet target of every paparazzi flaunting almost every big named brand. So without a shadow of a doubt, her hairstyles have played a major role in creating the magnificent admiration for the Kenyan beauty who was never once spotted in straight hair weaves.
